Linus Makes a Comeback

Linus Makes a Comeback

Linus Radford, aka Randal Prater, was one of my first friends in Second Life (and the only person I knew in first life before second life). Yesterday he invited me to hear him play, and though I don’t usually go to concerts in SL anymore I was pleased to see Linus back at it — […]

Illinois Nazis

Tonight at Soul Mods the topic turned to politics. While I myself am not keen on political discussions in a club setting (which is supposed to be fun) this was nothing too serious. Most of it was banter, somewhat light hearted and everyone was having a good time — or so I thought. After some […]

Punk Rock Still Offends People

Punk Rock Still Offends People

I was nearly deleted from someone’s Facebook friend list last night because I posted God Save The Queen by the Sex Pistols. They said that they were about to delete me for it but God told them not to because He (God) loves me. Thumbs up, God. Thanks for sticking up for me! (Maybe tell […]

The Colours of SL

The Colours of SL

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m more colour sensitive than most. Often I will like or hate the way a place looks based on one thing: what colour it is. I’m not sure if me having synesthesia is related to my extreme reaction to colour, but the brain is a complicated thing so it […]

The Malware That Was

The Malware That Was

This morning I looked at Moonletters only to freak out when I saw hyperlinks all over various words. I knew for sure I didn’t put them there, and at first I thought it might be because I installed some new plugin in WordPress. So I went through all of the plugins to see if deactivating […]

The Rant That Was

The Rant That Was

Earlier today I wrote a lengthy rant which, on reflection, I decided not to publish. It had this picture as the header. I was reminded of an article I wrote last year called The Second Letter which explained how I often write something scathing and over the top to start with, to get it out […]

The Highest Man in SL

The Highest Man in SL

BY GUEST WRITER SLATE MCLEOD It’s funny how reading one blog can lead on to reading another. I read one of Shauna’s yesterday, and below it was a link to a related article by Jellie Arrowmint written in 2011. It described her attempt to get to as high an altitude as she possibly could in […]

Weird Feeling

This may sound unusual, but since I’ve gotten back from my road trip I’ve felt something “weird” is happening in Second Life. I’m not talking about Linden Lab updates or the normal stuff associated with technology, but the human element. It’s a vibe among certain people, an undercurrent . . . . I sense change […]

What a Strange Trip It's Been

What a Strange Trip It’s Been

Graz started yesterday’s post by saying “This will be a short one from me because I’ve been away on holiday for the past week” but then he went on to write a thought provoking article. (He does stuff like that!) Me? I was on a road trip too, but unlike Graz I came back so […]
